Horn has been increasing in size for 1 year. Patient is poor. Obviously this needs a biopsy but that will be very difficult so unknown if it is benign or malignant. Thoughts on management?



Diagnosis; Cutaneous Horn Cutaneous horn is a reaction pattern rather than specific condition. On histopathology different types of lesions can be seen at base of cutaneous horn. Most common conditions are as follow. 1 Actinic keratosis 2 Seborrheic keratosis 3 Squamous cell carcinoma 4 Basal cell carcinoma 5 trichilemmoma (Excision biopsy can be easily done at Teaching medical institution or charitable medical institution).

It may be SCC BCC

Sebaceous horn can be excised under local Anaesthesia

Simple Excision biopsy or Electro cautery can be done
